2014 Partnership for Global Learning Conference
Ready for the World
Asia Society was very proud to present the seventh annual Partnership for Global Learning Conference June 27–28, 2014. PGL14 welcomed 500 educators and administrators to Brooklyn, where they participated in 60 breakout sessions devoted to learning about the most innovative pedagogies, implementation strategies, and student motivational techniques. This year’s plenary sessions featured Dr. Tererai Trent, who spoke of her own path to global competence; a performance by Sonali Mishra, a classically trained dancer of Odissi, showcasing an amalgamation of Orissa’s music, poetry, rhythm and literature; a student panel led by Marc Chun, a program officer from the Hewlett Foundation; and a keynote by Giselle Martin-Kniep, an expert in evaluation and assessment.
